I'm not picky.
Despite the work that the greens keepers were doing, I loved playing the course. We were done in 3 hours at a leisurely pace from the blues. 17 is a dandy!
Greens and tee boxes were a mess from aeration. Play the course a few times a year and I think every time they have aerated. Just don’t know how they charge what they do for that crap. Not worth playing unless you get a deal.
Good course - needs more care
It was a good round overall - the greens are good, and the holes well structured. However the overall maintenance of the course needs to be improved (There were areas with rocks strewn all over, bad tee off areas)- specifically compared to the price charged by the course.
I have played this course before and enjoyed the experience. However, this time around, not so much. In general the course was not in very good condition. When you hit the ball in the fairway you expect to hit off grass. Not always the case. The pace of play was fair but we did wait for the group ahead of us fairly often. I think the course is over-priced for the quality of the product. I would definitely go to Honey Brook, as I will my next time around.
Needs to mow the course
Booked this course as a something different place to play. Quickly found out that mowing fringes and greens are optional and they choose not to. Fringes were as long as the rough and patchy to boot. The greens were easily the slowest I’ve played all year, I’ve played fairways that were mown tighter then these greens. The holes are close together and someone hitting into your hole thinks yelling fore is optional and not necessary in most cases. I can’t believe they have memberships and higher daily fee rates and aren’t held to a higher standard. I would never be a member of a course that keeps the course in these conditions. One bright spot is the tavern after the round. Don’t play golf and just go for lunch.
Expected More for $70
Love the layout because of the variety of holes. Greens were receptive and rolled very nicely. Sand traps were also very good. Pace of play was very good and a ranger keeps things moving along. My group was told to pick it up but not in a stern way — which is how it should be. The tee boxes and some of the fairways need some TLC and for $70 (before 7:30 on the weekend) — my group expected more. There are too many other options within 45 minutes to warrant coming to Downingtown any time soon. I should note the service in the 19th Hole is exceptional (kudos to Sara)!!!
If you want to play an over-priced round of golf where the rangers constantly badger you about pace of play the entire time, look no further. We had a ranger tell us to pick the pace up even after we were 10 minutes ahead of pace with no one in front or behind us. Conditions here used to be solid but since Jawarski purchased it’s really gone down hill. Best advice would be to look for another course to play golf. Honey brook and Broad Run are nearby and much better courses.
I love this course. Not overly challenging, yet not too easy. Just right. Conditions are always good. Staff is super friendly and inviting. I didn't have the chance to eat there yet but it's on the to do list. I've never had a bad experience here, haven't been up in a while so it was nice to see the experience is still wonderful.
This is always a fun course. Conveniently located and appropriately priced.
One of my favorite courses. Greens just punched so putting was a problem but only temporary and price seemed to be adjusted for it. Once the greens heal, I highly recommend the course.
Under 3 1/2 hour round, very windy day, course was in pretty good shape considering the wet winter we had this year.
Great course, great condition, very pleasant staff
This has a cool old style layout. Hit it solid you will score well.
Because of hot wet conditions, the course has been putting sand on their greens every 2 weeks and has let them grow more than normally. Putting was a challenge and there was very little roll out on approach shots. Other that that the course was in excellent condition.
This is a traditional parkland style course that is not heavily wooded but has enough trees to require accurate shots. The greens are moderately to heavily bunkered and the slopes on the greens
require proper placement of approach shots if you want to score well. Conditions were excellent with no visible flaws on the greens. Some minor drawbacks are no driving range (although they have a couple of nets you can hit into) and no real practice green, although they are building a large practice green that looks like it will be ready soon.
